There is odds, but they’re just rudimentary fillers at this stage. You can tell because Pulis is on there and obviously we won’t be appointing him.

 

Exactly - unless an appointment is already lined up, which I suspect it isn’t, it is way too early for anyone to have any inside info on what the board are thinking.

Any odds list immediately after a manager is sacked is just a list of who is out of work.

With prices changing based on bets placed rather than inside knowledge.

At this stage there won’t be many bets placed. You can tell from the amount of ‘25/1’ shots which seems to be the standard entry level odds.

I think there might have been a bit of money put on Howe as he’s the outlier there.

Probably have a better list within next 48 hours. Given the stage of the season and us being a bit desperate I can see quite a lot being leaked by agents to help their negotiating hand.

I disagree , think the club may have made contact prior to sacking Dean. It was clear Dean was going on Saturday it was just a question of when

I have to be honest l, any of those would do for me. My expectations are extremely low do one of those would be a nice surprise.

I'm pretty laid back generally, whilst there's things that the club do that annoy me I generally don't get too worked up. 

Appointing Pulis is one of the few things they could do now that would make me immediately walk away and find something else to do on a Saturday afternoon.

Mark Hughes is an interesting one. Bit of a name, only managed in the Prem.

But of a Prem level journeyman but often his departures were down to circumstances as much as performance. 

His stock is on the wane, so perhaps wouldn’t be the sexiest choice - but perhaps a solid one?

I think, at least I hope, they club knew Saturday but realised it was too short notice to change anything for Tuesday - may as well let him have one last chance, couldn't get much worse

In the meantime, hopefully they already started making plans to approach people

Let's not forget, for what seemed like months, Chris Hughton was the favourite last year  :facepalm:

And it’s changing all the time. Cook now favourite but these make no odds, no pun intended, whatsoever. It’s down to the used car salesman and the Bermuda Triangle to decide.

JL is thinking “shorts and flip flops today I reckon”. :)

I would love him to come here. 🤞

Can't be many that wouldn't, surely. Doesn't guarantee promotion, good football or any success. And if it doesn't work out there will be plenty of people wise in hindsight who can explain why it was never going to work out. 

But, at this point in time, given everything, if Howe was the appointment, everyone would be celebrating, no?

(I know it's just odds and it remains very, very unlikely).
